This article acknowledges the resilience of the human spirit and the role of financial advisors during times of unexpected crisis. Financial planners offer clients their expertise and wisdom in times of unexpected crisis, just as they do when clients have the luxury of time to plan. After September 11, 2001 and in the midst of a bear market, there appears to be increased awareness of the need for financial planning. Something else became evident after September 11, thanks to the indomitable human spirit, air travel resumed, the public consumed, and U.S. flags waved proudly. People are sometimes shaken and rattled, people sometimes lose hope and people sometimes are driven by fear. But people do not give up.
